  • Mercedes-Benz F600 (2008) fuel-cell concept review

    26 June 2008 by the CAR road test team

    Mercedes has been running a test fleet of fuel cell A-classes since 2002, and it’s preparing for small-scale production of a fuel cell B-class in 2010. To get an idea of what the fuel-cell B-class...

  • Mercedes B170 NGT (2008) gas powered review

    Price:  £22,791

    25 June 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    The initials at the end of Mercedes-Benz B 170 NGT do not stand for No Green Technology. That’s just a rumour. BMW may be thrashing Mercedes in the environmental PR stakes just now, but it doesn’t mean the big M isn’t trying. The B 170 NGT is a B-Class with a conscience. And a boot full of Natural Gas… So, the...

  • Mercedes CLS63 AMG (2008): review

    Price:  £75,050

    18 June 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    This is the top 'banana' – the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG with 507bhp and 465lb ft of torque. Mildly revised along with the rest of the CLS range, the CLS63 gets a new set of so-called silencers,...

  • Mercedes CLC 220 CDI (2008) review

    Price:  £22,260

    11 June 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    Previously the C-class Sports Coupe, now the Mercedes-Benz CLC, this is the junior coupe in the three-pointed star’s line-up. Some 1100 modifications underline the change to the bootbadge. But is...

  • Mercedes S320 CDI LWB (2008) review

    Price:  £59,885

    02 June 2008 by Ben Pulman

    The best car Mercedes makes? Surely it’s got to be the S320 CDI. The S-class absolutely dominates its market segment and, according to Merc, nearly 25 percent of all limos sold in the UK are the...

  • Mercedes B180 CDI 5dr (2008) review

    Price:  £20,850

    30 May 2008 by Guy Bird

    Plaudits for the Mercedes B-class were thin on the ground back in 2005 when the car first launched, pitched as a ‘Compact Sports Tourer’. To drive it was nothing of the sort – not as ‘compact’ or...

  • Mercedes A170 ECO Stop/start 5dr (2008) review

    Price:  £18,830

    30 May 2008 by Guy Bird

    Luckily for the Mercedes A-class, its otherwise dull 2008 facelift has been saved from obscurity by interesting new engine and powertrain developments. Ignore the forgettable visual exterior and...

  • Mercedes CLS320 CDI facelift (2008) review

    Price:  £46,255

    24 April 2008 by Chris Chilton

    It’s facelift time for Merc’s banana-shaped CLS, a coupe/saloon crossover based on the dull old E-class. It hasn’t been around for long so there are no big changes for this mid-life refresh, just...

    It's been a long wait, but we've finally driven Mercedes' new junior off-roader, the GLK

  • Mercedes SL63 AMG (2008) review

    Price:  £94,000

    09 March 2008 by Chris Chilton

    Mercedes’ SL gets a new face for 2008 but there’s far more to the SL63 AMG than simple cosmetic surgery. As the name suggests, the big Benz sports car finally adopts the naturally aspirated V8...

    06 February 2008 by Nick Trott

    After 185,000 sales of the second-generation SLK (and 310,000 of the first), Mercedes-Benz has given its little sportster a raft of enhancements, improvements and other things ending in ‘ments’ . It...

  • Mercedes C180 SE (2008) review

    Price:  £22,937

    07 January 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Four cylinders? A manual gearbox? Not traditionally attractive territory for a Mercedes, especially if you’re talking petrol rather than diesel. But Mercedes hopes you’ll go for this car rather than...

  • Mercedes C220 CDI estate (2007) review

    19 September 2007 by Ged Maxwell

    Ooh, a compact exec estate. What combination of sport/tourer/Avant/wagon is it called? None: the Mercedes C-Class estate is, well, just that. Plain old estate. And the largest premium-class estate at...

    So this is Merc’s answer to the new BMW M3... Got it. Hot C's have long been part of Mercedes' line-up, but none has had us quite as excited as this, the C63 which as the name suggests, gets the big...

    Price:  £350,000

    24 July 2007 by Georg Kacher

    That name's quite a mouthful, isn’t it? Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster is indeed a tongue twister. And make sure you get Merc and McLaren the right way round, otherwise the men from Germany will...

    19 June 2007 by Peter Burgess

    It looks like there’s a major change going on here Certainly is. Gone are the smooth curves of the previous C-class, replaced with something far more edgy and, dare we say it, rather modern. The...

    Looks like a bit of a beast. Is this another warp-enabled starship from AMG? Yep. This is Mercedes’ big CL-class coupe fitted with AMG’s ballistic 6.0-litre V12 bi-turbo engine and a bunch of...

  • Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black Series (2008) review

    Price:  £100,000

    16 May 2007 by Nick Trott

    Black Series? Sounds posh and a little edgy. What's all that about then? AMG groups its cars into five divisions. The Black Series machines are second only to the borderline psychotic and...

    Seven years since the last, an all-new C-Class. What are the highlights? Mercedes has gone back to basics with the new C. Keen to banish memories of the E-class quality/breakdown/recall debacle, it...

    So what's Mercedes come up with to mark the SLK's first decade? The SLK Edition 10, a special version of the roadster with some very special paint. No different mechanically from the existing...
